Youth Engagement

The event livestream opens the doors for many new groups to experience Pure Pitch Rally. This year, Pure Pitch Rally is collaborating with high school students, teachers and advisers around the Kansas City metro and beyond to expose young people to the art of pitching and the new ideas presented. CAPS Network, Cristo Rey Kansas City, University Academy and others will incorporate Pure Pitch Rally into a lesson on entrepreneurship and innovation.

Pure Pitch Rally aspires to help Kansas City become America’s Most Entrepreneurial City. By reaching students, we can be part of building the next generation of business-builders.
